Alternate Titles: Legend of Escape
Konstantin Khabenskiy, Christopher Lambert
Based on the true story, international historical project “Sobibor” is dedicated to the heroism of the Soviet officer Alexander Pechersky. During the great Patriotic war, being in a Nazi concentration camp Sobibor* he managed to do the impossible — for only three weeks to organize a revolt and mass escape of the prisoners. Part of the escapees were caught and shot, and the rest led by Pechersky managed to escape and joined the partisans.
*Sobibor was one of the four concentration camps in Poland. It was not a “common” camp, prisoners here were not divided into fit or unfit for work:
those who got there were doomed for death.After the escape led by Pechersky it was soon dismantled at Himmler’s order.
